    In October 2017, 14-year-old Caitlin had an accident in her head while playing sports with her friends. But no one expected that the accident caused the girl’s memory to be severely damaged.

    She cannot make new memories

    Caitlin then couldn’t remember the date, which classes she signed up for, or even how to open the trunk of the family’s new car. Every morning when she wakes up, she forgets everything that happened the day before.

    Her parents then took Caitlin to a hospital in Greensboro (North Carolina, USA). Doctors after the diagnosis believed that her memory will recover after a few weeks. But 18 months on, Caitlin still can’t remember anything that happened more than 12 hours ago.

    Doctors are still unable to find a solution. They diagnosed her with “anterograde amnesia” – a disease that interferes with the ability to form new memories.

    Every morning when she wakes up, she completely forgets what happened the day before

    At present, this disease has no specific cure. According to her doctors, the situation can only be improved by memory training exercises or recording the information yourself through diaries.

    In Caitlin’s case, her brain erased all memories that happened later in the day when she went to sleep, causing her to forget everything when she woke up. Every morning she wakes up, believing it’s the day after the accident, even though it’s actually been 18 months since then.

    Her story quickly went viral that a document series about her named Caitlin Can’t Remember was made.

    Her family helps her to remember

    “Hey baby, you hit your head while practicing, and it’s a little out of your mind.” – every morning Caitlin’s father wakes her up with such words.

    Now, every day, Caitlin will have someone reminding what day of the week it is, the schedule of that day. There are sticky notes prepared by her sister, Sarah Little, throughout the house to help her get through the day safely

    The family also took the girl to see many doctors, but no one could identify the mechanism that made her memory reset. Currently, they are testing a new treatment in Texas in the hope of improving the situation.

    However, the cost of this treatment is quite high, so the family set up a GoFundMe page to ask for help.
